The family of a 19 year old Oregon sailor killed in Afghanistan talks about the loss. Riley Gallenger Long had only been in Afghanistan for 27 days and had been helping an injured marine when he was killed. “I truly believe that he was meant to go over there to try to help other people. Whether it was a wounded soldier or kids on the streets, that’s what he wanted to do” His mother, Susan Blanchard says as much as it hurts that his son is gone, there are no regrets. Gallenger Long was a Navy Corpsman who graduated from Forest Grove High School last year. He was the 148th serviceman from Oregon or Southwest Washington to die in the Mideast wars. A funeral service will be held at the Forest Grove Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and burial will take place at Willamette National Cemetery in Portland.
